An American Tragedy was dramatized in 1929 (respectevely 1926) by a man named Patrick Kearney. Is there any (biographical etc.) information about Kearney? I learned that this play opened in New York in 1926, was attacked in Baltimore in 1929. How often was it performed on stage? Was Kearney the only one to dramatize this novel?

Is there a Hungarian translation of An American Tragedy. If there is one it must have been published around 1929.

I am just finishing a manuscript on the Paul Zsolnay publishing company (Vienna) which will also deal with the relations and contacts between Zsolnay and Theodore Dreiser. Zsolnay published some of Dreiser's works from 1927 onward (An American Tragedy, Jennie Gerhardt, The Titan,
Sister Carrie, The "Genius"). Having gone through all the material stored in the archive of the Zsolnay company some questions remained unanswered. Let me post these questions seperately to your list. Maybe somoe of you can be of further help.

(1)
Did Dreiser have any american agents to make agreements with foreign publishing companies? The Zsolnay-archive contains no material about his first contact with Zsolnay, which must have been around 1926.

My father, born in 1910, was a cousin to Theodore Dreiser. He and his siblings, my elderly aunts and uncles of Pierceton, Indiana, used to tell me stories of how Theodore was shunned by his community and even his own family, after writing such scandalous stories (Sister Carrie, An American Tragedy). My father told me that Theodore's brother Paul, was so ashamed to be associated with his brother that he changes his name to Dressler. He wrote "I'll Take You Home Again, Kathleen," after which I was named. My father is long gone, now, but I will always remember these stories and hope they were all accurate, as well.

I'm delighted and grateful to find a Dreiser site. I'm just starting to read him--I'm about a hundred pages into The Titan--and am already satisfied he's someone worth investing a good deal of time in. His style is unbeautiful, his lyric effusions are embarrassing, his humor is minimal. Balzac or, at a lesser artistic level, Louis Auchincloss. Anyway, I don't know Dreiser too well yet, but I'm planning to, and I'm glad to have this page to help me along. Best regards.

For the benefit of users, I'd like to write about "Dreiser Forum" in detail.

"Dreiser Forum" is not just a Web page. You can take part in the discussion, and you can send information to "Dreiser Forum." Although the editor himself post a message sometimes, as you have noticed, he is just one of the contributers. Let's make it democratic, interactive, and polyphonic.

"Dreiser Forum" is not a mailing list. "Dreiser Forum" takes no membership, and doesn't usually send out electronic-mail. Although I've been enjoying reading mail from several mailing lists, I've decided to make this a mail-web project, instead of a list. So there's no way to subscribe to "Dreiser Forum." It never floods your mail box. You can easily see the past logs. Of course, it will have many links in the future.

Founded in 1830, the Indiana Historical Society is a private, nonprofit membership organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and disseminating information about the history of the Hoosier state. The IHS web site, located at http://www.ihs1830.org/, includes information on the Society and its activities. The site also features extensive information on Hoosier history, including Theodore Dreiser (http://www.ihs1830.org/dreiser.htm).

When I first made my Dreiser page on the Web on 1 July, I was not sure what is the best fitting name for this space. So I decided to ask people on the Net to vote for their favorite names, and sent e-mail to AmLit-L, American Literature Discussion Group, and some of my friends, asking to take part, on 16 July. I sent an invitation to AmLit2-L, Discussion of American Literature from 1880-present, too. The vote continued until 26 of August.

Of all 17 e-mail votes, one was from Australia, one from Austria, seven Japan, and eight America.

The result was as follows:

Dreiser Forum, 9
The Dreiser Dossier, 5
Dreiser Bulletin Board, 3

Thus the name of this Web space became "Dreiser Forum."

I thank all of the voters.

125 years ago today, in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA, a baby boy was born into a German-American family. He was named Theodore Herman Dreiser, who grew up to be known as a writer.

In 1971, Robert Penn Warren wrote Homage to Theodore Dreiser; August 27, 1871 -- December 28, 1945: On the Centennial of His Birth.

In 1996, I'd like to celebrate his birthday by starting a mail-web project for the people interested in him. Its name is "Dreiser Forum."
